My word! I didn't bring any cold weather clothes with me to Denver, which goes to show I know nothing about Denver's weather! I have had to wear one of Vincents long sleeve shirts and the one pair of jeans I did pack in order to try and ward off the cold. What I actually need is a nice warm sweatsuit and some wool socks! After a very nice first week here it has turned very chilly and rainy. We even had a hail storm Sunday! This is not what I am used to. Leaving Lexington, NC when it was in the high 80's and even reaching into the high 90's did not induce me to pack for cold weather. That does not speak well for my ability to think outside of the moment/condition I am in nor of my ability to plan for any eventuality when I am on the road! I did pack long cotton slacks and cotton short sleeve and sleeveless tops....Those would be too warm at home but are like no covering at all in the cold air here. I am glad I packed one pair of thick socks just in case I needed them, and one pair of running shoes as they are a necessity now. I plan on a quick trip to the Ross store to see if I can find a sweater or sweatsuit for days and evenings like this. And, of course, a nice pair of wool socks to keep my feet warm at night! My summer PJ's will just have to do as I am not going to spend any more than I absolutely have too....I want to spend on things I want...not things I need..besides, I have enough of that sort of thing at home...where they are helping me not at all!
